Fruit is nature's answer to the human sweet tooth. It's also a vital part of a healthy diet, providing energy and nutrients as well as protection from diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's. The powerful antioxidants present in fruit - including beta carotene, lycopene and vitamins A, C and E - help defend the body against toxic, unstable molecules known as free radicals. They also contribute to healthy skin, hair and nails.
With organic farming, fruit is fully cultivated and ready for immediate consumption. This results in the highest possible nutritional value. Choosing organic also means your fruits contain no insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers or genetic modifications. Unlike conventional farming, which depletes the soil, organic farming improves the soil and even builds topsoil through the composting of farm waste.
